1500J Drifter vrs 1500 Vulcan Classic
« on: September 12, 2017, 19:00:19 PM »

Will the Ignition Switch and Locking Fuel Cap from a Vulcan Classic work/fit on a 99 Drifter J..? Are parts inter-changeable between the two models..and what years will fit what? Thanks.

Check on the Partzilla site. Good source of information. It looks like the part numbers are the same.

If the p/n's are the same they are interchangeable. Most things on the Classic can be used by the Drifter... but you need to check.

Here is a cross-listing we are still developing. Anyone who has information to be added please provide that info so we can add to the listing.

Classic brake rotors will interchange between the 800's.

I had a Damaged front caliper with a stuck piston and the handlebar master cylinder had severe road rash. I replaced the entire front brake system with one off of a Vulcan Classic. Mine was a 99 1500 Drifter and the replacement was from a 02 Vulcan Classic. During the replacement I observed that the Caliper Holder for the Vulcan Classic is flat, and the Caliper Holder on the 1500 Drifter has a 1 3/8 stand off....otherwise the 1500 Vulcan Classic and the 1500 Drifter are the same! Change out the Caliper Holder and your good to go! FYI.

I'll be adding anything you guys come up with to the cross reference. Please be sure you have personal knowledge of this stuff.

And thanks.
